APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED FOR EDITOR OF
The Division on Women and Crime (DWC) of the American Society of Criminology is accepting applications for editor (or team of two co-editors) of its official journal, Feminist Criminology. Feminist Criminology is an innovative journal that is dedicated to research related to women, girls, and crime within the context of a feminist critique of criminology. Published by SAGE Publications since its first issue in 2006, this international publication focuses on research and theory that highlights the gendered nature of crime and criminal justice.
The journal uses Manuscript Central, an on-line, electronic submission process. The new editor will be responsible for administering this process and publishing five issues a year. The editor will serve a three or four year term, to be negotiated with the DWC Executive Council. It is anticipated that new manuscript submissions and other editorial duties will transfer to the new editor around June, 2018. The editor is responsible for the timely and substantive output of the journal, including the solicitation of manuscripts, supervision of the peer review process, and the final selection of articles for publication. Along with Sage staff, the editor is also responsible for marketing and publicity, particularly via social media. The editor implements the journal’s editorial policies, maintains high professional standards for published content, and ensures the integrity of the journal. The editor is accountable to the Feminist Criminology Editorial Board as well as to the DWC Executive Council. The editor is an ex-officio member of the DWC Executive Council and thus participates in related emails and conference calls. The editor attends the ASC conference yearly, where DWC meetings, an editorial board meeting and additional activities require the editor’s participation. Finally, the editor is part of the annual selection of the Best Article of the Year Award as well as the Feminist Criminology Graduate Research Scholarship Awardee.
The editor’s supporting institution normally provides office space, file storage, equipment, one graduate assistant to serve as managing editor for the duration of the editorship (10 hours a week minimum commitment), and release time for the editor. The DWC provides a stipend of $5,000 a year (or $7,500 for a co-editor team), usually to cover the editor’s summer salary, and also reimburses the institution for the managing editor’s summary salary. In addition, the DWC provides a stipend towards the costs to attend the ASC conference for the editor(s) (@$500) as well as paying for the expenses for the managing editor as per ASC travel guidelines, http://www.asc41.com/about.htm.
